Thanksgiving was a great success this year. We didn't cook, we went out to a restaurant with a Thanksgiving buffet and enjoyed our meal immensely. Scott roasted a small turkey breast so we would have "leftovers" for sandwiches, and I bought a couple of pies, and we were good to go. And the best part was, we didn't have to spend 2 days cooking and all the mess to be cleaned up. And we had turkey, ham, prime rib and baked stuffed sole, so the family members who really don't care for turkey were in heaven. Hope yours was fantastic, too.
I thought today I would give you some tips for using those fibers that you have left over from when fibers were all the rage. If you are like me, you still have lots left. Let's use them up. Here are some ways to do that:
- Weave through mesh
- Create trees or grass
- Make hair or other features on paper dolls
- Use as a string for balloon diecuts or stamped balloons
- Tie through the hole on a tag
- Create a spider web
- Use as decorations on a Christmas tree
- Use as decorations on an Easter Egg
- Use as a blanket stitch around a border or mat
- Make tassels
- As needlepoint stitches on your page or card
- As an enhancement to die cuts
- Use to hang mini tags
- Use as an accent on Serendipity Squares
- As embroidery stitching
- Attach to a brad and use as a yoyo
- Use for wrapping presents
- Wind fibers tightly together to form the center of a flower
Can you think of other uses for fibers? Please add a comment. We will keep adding to the list.
Have a great week and I hope you get to do something crafty.
